    Thanks for the update Andrew

    I wonder how $50k to $100k invested in both would look in comparison also :o)

    If $100 drops 20% you're left with only $80, to get back to your $100 a 25% increase is required and if that same $100 drops 50% you're left with $50, to get back to your $100 though, a 100% increase is needed. As somone wiser than i said "losses are increasingly difficult to recover".

    With regards to the increase in the Index, the DJIA has had a great recovery in comparison to the S&P/ASX 200 (^AXJO).
